It will last almost a week
On the Pokemon Go website yesterday, developer Niantic announced that the mobile game will get a special event. This event will celebrate the upcoming releases of Pokemon Brilliant Diamond and Shining Pearl.
Starting Tuesday, November 16, Sinnoh starters Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup can be caught either with Lucas’ or Dawn’s hat. They will also be found in their shiny variants. Several other Pokemon will appear more frequently in the wild
The event will also halve the number of steps needed to hatch incubated eggs. And lower the Super Incubator steps by one-third.
If you’re looking for costumes, you’ll be in luck. The event will include Turtwig, Chimchar, and Piplup costumes for your avatar in the in-game shop. There will also be the default clothing from Diamond and Pearl, which will be free.
There are also event-themed stickers, which will be available at PokeStops, inside of Gifts, and in the in-game shop. Last up are the Event Box and Great Box bundles available throughout the event in the in-game shop.
The event will be split into two parts. The Pokemon Brilliant Diamond part will go from Tuesday, November 16 at 10:00am and end on Thursday, November 18 at 10:00am local time. The Pokemon Shining Pearl part will start on Thursday, November 18 at 10:00am and end on Sunday, November 21 at 10:00am local time.
